- Dillon Gee really did not have his good stuff tonight. He allowed a season high eight runs and allowed a season high six walks in only 3.2 innings.
- After disappearing for a couple of minutes when it was his turn at bat, Angel Pagan had to leave the game early with what turned out to be the stomach flu.
- Ryota Igarashi pitched again today, and no matter how bad the bullpen has pitched, he makes everyone else look better. After giving up two more runs today, his ERA for the month of August is up to 8.00, and his season ERA is now 5.54.
- As for some bright spots, two of the young Mets, Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada, continue to show why they belong. They combined for the Mets three hits against Cliff Lee, and Tejada in particular, looked very good in the field.
At the end of the day, there is no denying the Phillies are a much better team than the Mets. They beat them at every level, even more fundamentally sound, and a game like this does nothing to change that fact. Tomorrow Jon Niese faces Vance Worley, with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05 PM.
